Hi. I would like to pick up British English Accent. Is there any available materials in the market for that? Audiobook, video course, etc.
Is hard to find a native Britist speaker here for tutoring...
BBC - bbc.co.uk homepage - Home of the BBC on the Internet has good materials. BBC is a good model, highly respected, and careful in how they use English.
Except for "r", which in English is really a semivowel, the consonants don't change much between British and North American English. The differences are mainly in vocabulary, idioms, and sometimes, the vowels.
The BBC now don't expect their speakers to speak with a traditional "BBC accent". You will hear many regional accents; some are easier for non-native speakers than others.
I have to beg to differ, here. The "t" is often pronounced very differently, and the vowel system is completely different.
I highlighted the differences between British and American English in a video I made a couple of months ago: English as she is writ. The interesting part begins at 2 minutes 14 seconds.
If I understate, perhaps you overstate.
